Thank you to everyone who submitted their talented remixes! We heard everything from house to metal, jazz to dubstep, trance, industrial, ebm, edm, goth, 8-bit disco and more!
We understand the excitement of anticipation. We, Red Light District, wanted to select the top 3 as a group. Being a band of nearly 10 people who live all over the place with drastically different schedules, it takes time. We narrowed the 200 submissions down to a top ten... then to the top 3. There was a tie for 2nd place, so we had to do yet another voting round.
This was a timely process however, we gave our ears time to get to know each song. We have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of creative versions of remixes presented. There are a number of other mixes which we hope to include on the official release. Another post will follow reflecting this with all honorable mentions.

Introducing FL Studio Groove
FL Studio Groove Getting Started Tutorial
Does FL Studio Groove run on Android, iOS & Windows Phone?
We have plans to release FL Studio Groove on Android and iOS, no dates to be announced yet. Windows Phone is not planned at this stage.
Is FL Studio Groove compatible with FL Studio?
There is no direct compatibility at this stage, although you can export your groove audio to wav format and import that to FL Studio as with any wav file. In future, we plan to develop a VST version that will load inside FL Studio and support FL Studio Groove projects and vice-versa.
Can I load my own samples and record audio?
Not at this time, audio recording and sample loading are scheduled for a future update.
Is FL Studio Groove compatible with Windows 7, Vista, XP?
No. This is a Windows 8 application only, it will run on Windows 8 and Windows 8 RT compatible devices (x86, x64, ARM processors). A multi-touch monitor interface is recommended but you can use it with a mouse.
Is this related to FL Studio Mobile?
No, FL Studio Groove is a separate application. There are plans to integrate the synthesis engine from FL Studio Groove into FL Studio Mobile.
What is the difference between FL Studio Groove and FL Studio Mobile?
FL Studio Groove is a 'groovebox' style application with the focus on loop/sequence creation. These are turned into a complete songs by recording loop triggering & live tweaking of FX & mix parameters (great for trance, house, techno, EDM, IDM etc). FL Studio Mobile is a traditional 'linear style' DAW application where longer parts are laid down track-by track to create the final song. Tracks are sequenced and or recorded.
Below is an impromptu performance captured during the Image-Line 2013 developers meet. We had a couple of Windows 8, touch computers running FL Studio, so nucleon and sacco set to jamming on a table in one of the hotel rooms.
